Dot was a good friend and a wonderful person. My condolences and best wishes to all her children.
I was so sorry to learn of Daisy’s death. We had a wonderful friendship, sharing exercise classes, fun times, and lots of ice cream. I will truly miss her. She cared for me when I had a health problem, and helped me with a cat when I needed some assistance. We shared a love of cats, and I was sorry I couldn’t share my latest cat adventure with her. She was always interesting, and we had many happy times together. I also enjoyed times spent with her other family members. My sincere
sympathy to you. I have sent a contribution to Great Plains SPCA;
seems very fitting. Love to all of you.
I knew Daisy through water exercise class at Garden Villas. She loved her family and I enjoyed visiting with her during our classes. No matter what else our group discussed, we always ended up talking about a good recipe someone had for “you name it”, especially desserts! Daisy was a special lady and all who knew her will miss her greatly. God bless you, and may you find comfort in the memories you hold in your hearts.
Our condolences to the Rothrock family. Hoping you all find peace in your time of loss. Love, Karen and Bob Pinney
